Schoolchildren attend anti-bullying event in Bradford

Hundreds attend event

Hundreds of schoolchildren have gathered for an anti-bullying event in Bradford this lunchtime.

The event at City Park is in memory of 11-year-old Asad Khan, who was found hanged in his bedroom last September.

Children will be taking part in a martial arts class led by ju-jitsu instructor Mumtaz Khan who wants to highlight the importance of martial arts as a life skill.

The event was taking place a year on from the death of Asad Khan. An inquest into his death, which heard claims he had been bullied, will resume next month.
